Thumbsticks brings you the best reviews and analysis of the most notable video game releases (and play terrible games so you don’t have to).

World War Z Review

Is it still a cynical cash-in if a game is released 6 years after a movie? With World War Z, we're about to find out.
Dangerous Driving review

Dangerous Driving Review

Near every video game genre has a franchise that’s helped define it. Fighting games have Mortal Kombat; Resident Evil is the king of horror; and Burnout is the people’s champion of arcade racing.
Tropico 6 review

Desert Child

Entering the visually striking pixel-art world of Desert Child, you’d be forgiven for initially believing it to be…
Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden review
